Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What we have is 36 degrees for one angle, we also know that the angle of the tree with the ground is 90. 90+36=126, all angles sum up to 180, so 180  126 = 54

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It asked about the angle of the rope with the building... Wouldn't it just be also 36 degrees, since the triangles are similar?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i mean, if you look at it as a transversal, wouldn't it be 36?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so ur saying that 36 + 90 + 36 = 180? well it does not.
